    What is Cyclocross

    I searched the forum and came up with only 500 plus posts containing the word cyclocross. Hah! So, what is it? I have been looking at the bikes and it appears to me all they are, is basically a road bike with knobby tires! That's gotta be a harsh ride!

    Someone explain! I would rather get a cyclocross than a road bike; they seem to be a bit more versatile.

    Basically, Cyclocross is on-road and off-road cycling with a specially modified road bike. Although the terrain is not (supposedly) as arduous as mountain biking, there are times when the rider must dismount and carry his/her bike over an obstacle, i.e., a fallen log, raging stream, etc. Check out USA Cycling
